Project

Social studies alive

This project is a collaborative project between Benjamin Crago-Schneider and Julie
 Pepper. The work for this project was shared equally by the two authors. This project is an
 Alternative Culminating Experience for a Masters of Art in Education: Curriculum and
 Instruction with an Elective Emphasis on Arts in Education. This project follows pathway III:
 Developing a curriculum, program, or performance related to arts education or arts in education.
 The authors developed a play with third, fourth, and fifth grade students with the purpose of
 bringing social studies alive through research, vignettes, and songs. Ultimately this play was
 presented to the school and the students’ families. The authors used journals, student research,
 and other forms of authentic assessments to track student success and growth throughout the
 project. The authors found that this was a meaningful and powerful way to teach the social
 studies and arts to their students.
